From the desk of:
Mr.Wang Qin
Hang Seng Bank Ltd.
Des Voeux Rd.Branch
Central Hong Kong
Hong Kong.

I am Mr.Wang Qin, credit officer of Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have an urgent and
very confidential business proposition for you.

On June 6, 1998, a British Oil consultant/contractor with the Chinese Solid
Minerals Corporation, Mr. Smith Lawrence made a numbered time (Fixed) Deposit for
twelve calendar months, valued at $48,000,000.00 (Forty-eight Million united states
Dollars only) in my branch. Upon maturity,I sent a routine notification to
his forwarding address but got no reply. After a month, we sent a reminder
and finally we discovered from his contract employers, the Hong Kong Solid
Minerals Corporation that Mr. Smith Lawrence died from an automobile
accident. On further investigation, I found out that he died without making
a WILL, and all attempts to trace his next of kin was fruitless.
I therefore made further investigation and discovered that Mr. Smith
Lawrence did not declare any kin or relations in all his official documents, including his
Bank Deposit paperwork in my Bank. This sum of $48,000,000.00 is still sitting in my Bank and the interest is being rolled over with the
principal sum at the end of each year. No one will ever come forward to claim it.
According to Laws of Hong Kong, at the expiration of 5 (five) years, the money
will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if
nobody applies to claim the fund.

Consequently, my proposal is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand in
as the next of kin to Mr. Smith Lawrence so that the fruits of this old man's labor will
not get into the hands of some corrupt government officials.This is simple, I will like you to provide immediately your full names and address so that the attorney will prepare the necessary documents and affidavits that will put you in place as the next of kin. We shall employ the services of an attorney for drafting and
notarization of the WILL and to obtain the necessary documents and letter of
probate/administration in your favor for the transfer. A bank account in any part of the
world that you will provide will then facilitate the transfer of this money
to you as the beneficiary/next of kin.

The money will be paid into your account for us to share in the ratio we will both accept and appreciate with an allowance
left for Expenses Incurred in the course of the
transaction . There is no risk at all as all the paperwork for this transaction will be
done by the attorney and with my position as the credit officer guarantees the successful execution of this transaction. If you are interested, please
reply immediately to my email address: doorharry@yahoo.co.uk

Upon your response, I shall then provide you with more details and relevant
documents that will help you understand the transaction. Please send me your confidential telephone and fax numbers for easy communication.

You should observe utmost confidentiality, and rest assured that this transaction would be most profitable for both of us because I shall require your assistance to invest my share in your country.

Awaiting your urgent reply.

Thanks and regards.

Mr.Wang Qin.
